Center for Interim Programs Vice President Jason Sarouhan
Center for Interim Programs Vice-President Jason Sarouhan traveled to San Diego recently to speak on a panel for the National Association for College Admissions Counseling's (NACAC) 71st National Conference. He talked about five "types" of students to help illustrate who is choosing to take a gap year, and why:

The worker, with high test scores and a high grade-point average.
The meaning-seeker, generally with high test scores and a lower GPA.
The pragmatist, who wants to attend college with a clearer focus.
The struggler, whose high-school experience has been clouded by learning differences.
The floater, who isn’t fully engaged with life and may be on the immature side.
